What happened when your wisdom teeth came in?

Not everyone has them, right? Or some people aren't greatly affected? I have friends who've gone through a lot of pain when they're removed. I'm eighteen (and a half, if that matters in tooth-years) and I think I see one in the back... just wondering what to expect before I go to the dentist.

One of my friends bought me a really cool pair of patterned tights. But they're knee-high tights, and I fail at being a girl so I don't know what to wear them with.

Most of my skirts are knee-length, which leaves a stretch of bare knee between stocking and skirt that looks kind of weird to me.

Collapse )

So, what should I wear them with?

EDIT: It's mostly the "knee-high" bit that's bugging me. Is it okay to wear them with something that stops above the knee?

Anyone know anything about dream interpretation?

I've had several dreams recently about cheating on my boyfriend.
Now, I know the obvious thing to infer from this is that I am in some way unhappy with the boy, but I've read that dreams don't always literally mean what they show, and I really am very happy with him. Plus, most of the dreams I've had feature me cheating on him with my ex, who was emotionally abusive and someone I never ever ever want to go back to, much less even see again. I always feel guilty when I wake up from these dreams, and maybe I'd feel less so if I had an idea of what they might mean.

Any thoughts?

((Hey, I had class the next day and I didn't have time to do it any other way, really. :P 20 hours and 45 minutes later, I declared, "50,007 words! I am a magical leprechan!" and pranced off to bed under the spell of sleep deprivation. Also - my ex-boyfriend who I was still shagging promised me a good snog if I did it in under a day. I win!))

Silent Movies question

(wondering how many - if any - replies I'll get)

In silent movies, they have the little cards that show you what the dialogue is. Why is it that the actors, while it appears they are speaking, are not ever saying what is printed on the dialogue? In fact, they appear to be saying something not only totally different from the dialogue you are shown, but something much, much longer! For instance, the dialogue image will read "Why, thank you!" and then the actor on screen looks like she's telling the other actor all about the best way to, I don't know, get stubborn stains out of a hat, or something. Why do they do that? We can't hear what they are saying anyway, and how many people are lip readers? Why don't they just have the actors speak the lines they are telling us they are saying or, even, why not have the even speak at all? Though I do know, many silents were re-dubbed later as talkies. Maybe this is why?

It really annoys me.

Also, why did so many women (read: Louise Brooks) faint in silents?

Hypothetical situation

Your daughter is about to marry a man you dislike. There's nothing really wrong with him, he just doesn't seem like the right man for her. You would like to try and delay the wedding to allow more time for your daughter to wake up and realize what she "should" do. You work for the Center for Disease Control and specialize in tuberculosis research. So you decide to infect the man with TB. Not enough to really hurt him, he's a strapping young lad, but he'll be unable to fly to the wedding, which is being held in another country.

But crap, the man ignores the doctor's warnings, skips the country, and flies to the wedding anyway. He and your daughter are married and you can't do anything about it now. They go on their honeymoon and eventually fly back into a neighboring country, coming back home by car. The authorities apprehend him and place him in quarantine.

Then it turns out, several people who had flown with him caught TB from him. One of them, an 80-year-old man, unfortunately dies from it. Your son-in-law is then charged with murder, facing life in prison. Do you fess up to infecting him?

What if he were facing the death penalty?

Help me plan my party games!

I'm having a party on friday. It is a "game night" party, where we play group games (Scattergories, Pictionary, Catch Phrase, Taboo, Outburst). All of these games require a pretty good grasp of the English language. However, 4 of my guests are not native english speakers (although they are pretty good, really) ... but I'd like to have at least one fun game that isn't word based. Do you know any fun group party games that aren't based on english words?

Also, I want to play "Who Am I" and I need suggestions for people/types of people. The concept of the game is simple - you pull an envelope out of the bin and give it to me - I pull out the card inside and attach it to your back. On it, it may say "Brittney Spears" or "Car Mechanic", or... (this is where you come in). You don't know what is on the card, but people talk to you throughout the night as if you are whoever it says you are on the card, and your job is to guess before you leave who you are. Make sense?

Can you give me ideas to put on the cards? I have some, but rather than listing what I have just give your ideas and I'll sort through them and pick the ones I like. Yay!

Why do they number them like that?

I heard that it was because each cigarette has tiny horizontal lines down it, and if you count them then thats how long the cigarette is?

Sounds stupid to me... 

I just don't know.

On a completely different note, I have the house completely to myself for the week and I tried sleeping naked and didn't like it.... Does it freak anyone else out to sleep naked?

omg Sarah Silverman

Does she not rock, TQC???

Do you not feel nervous or sad or sympathetic for Paris Hilton, who, if I'm not mistaken, headed to jail straight after the MTV Movie awards?

Or was it something else?

Anyway, here is Sarah Silverman's opening monologue and it's TIGHT


ETA: whoa, like, whoa. Watch the clip, my question about PAris Hilton relates to the CLIP thanks

Do you sleep with something that's not alive regularly? (Sleep, sleep, you plushie-lovers.)
What is it?
Do you it find it comforting?

The shift I've been working every day at work for the past month has begun at 6:15 AM. Suddenly, I had yesterday and today to sleep in, but I start back to normal tomorrow. One of my co-workers, upon seeing that I have to start going in early again tomorrow, asked me if I want to switch my hours with somebody so that I can sleep in. I told her "no, I'm always telling you I'm broke, and I am used to waking up early to work, so don't worry about it." We had this conversation this morning and again this afternoon at work.

When we talked about it in the afternoon, I asked her if she was just looking for hours and she wanted mine. She told me, "Lord, no, I never work that early, I just figure you might want to sleep in."

Then tonight after we got off work, she called me a few times and I ignored it. I hate to say it, I just ignore her calls a lot because I can barely understand her when she talks and I'd rather not try sometimes. Then at about 9:30 she called my house (instead of my cell phone) and woke my parents, and asked them to wake me up to ask me if I wanted to switch my hours tomorrow morning.

What could her intentions be? I can't figure out why she'd want to do this.

I'm applying for another job at my company. To submit for the job posting, I have to fill out a profile and there is a spot for a resume, "cover letter or comments" and address info.

If I already work there, do I need to have a cover letter? I'm 99% sure the job is mine(from what I've heard). So it feels ridiculous to have to sell myself in a cover letter, but I will if necessary.

Are there any foods that you have tried to make many times, using different recipes, and they always turn out bad? What food?
Sugar cookies. They always end up tasting the same gross/weird way.

AP textbooks & homeschooling

I'm a homeschool student, and I get my textbooks from the high school in my district. Some textbooks have "companion sites", which would really help me out because of the quizzes, reviews, interactive models, etc that are on there. The problem is, the school never gave me an access code. I really don't want to pay $43 to use it for a few months. I just don't have the extra $40 to spare :\ Does anyone know if there's anywhere that has free access codes for the companion sites? Or are there any resources for homeschoolers that do the same thing as the companion sites? If it matters, I'm using this book (it's a college textbook). Any help/suggestions on what to do or where to look would be great. Thanks!


Are you sad about anything right now? If so, what?

My boyfriend is terrible at keeping track of his phone. He promised me we would get together tonight and he never called/returned my calls or texts. I feel horrible. Tell me worse things so I can feel better, fellow TQC friends! :o(

okay, so i was wondering.
if there was anyway i could find out my bfs pw to his cell phone, we have Tmobile, and we're on the same account....
besides, putting his phone number in, and having the p.w sent to his phone... any other way? 

and, heres a question,

1)you and your boy, have been togther for 10 months....... and, your boy...
has previously cheated on you, but not physically cheated, more like.... phone sex, trading nudes, etc.
would you still be with them, or would you take a break... and, see how things go from there.

2) do you trust him? like, fully trust. let him hang out with whomever, talk to whatever girl. etc. or, 
do you freak and want to know what hes doing, when hes doing it, and where. 

 -my answer-  i just dont know what to do anymore, i cant trust him... he flirts with so many girls
online(myspace) and though text mesgs, this one girl esp. *hey Jess, if this is you, im going to kick your face in hun.
i love the kid, we've been though hell and back, but i just... cant fully trust him, its like he needs to gain it back.

...i'm not expecting some rude ass remarks, im really stuck, and need some advice. bffs are shitty when it comes to boy problems, when they are single hAHA.


hahah, thanks guys you've kept me entertained for the time-being.

my boyfriend and i are fine, we're not fighting or anyting. bassicallllly, perfect. =)
and, i know he hasnt cheated because... how is it possible to cheat, when hes with me literally 19/7. and, its impossible to cheat, when hes asleep? ha.

oh, and as for the phone sex/nudes cheating.... it happend 7 months ago.

and as for the whole pw thing,
i was just curious, i could care less if i knew it or not.

thanks guys <3
you've made my night.

but, no.. for the real advice, not the stupid shit.
thanks, ill keep some of the stuff in the back of my mind.
